// Margriet Groenendijk - Data science and machine learning from your browser

Data is available from an incredible number of sources in an endless number of formats. Data Science deals with the extraction of valuable insights from all sorts of data. Machine Learning is one of the tools to use to extract these insights and make predictions. Some of the essential packages for data scientists are numpy, pandas, matplotlib, pyspark and scikit-learn. All of which are supported by PixieDust (https://ibm-cds-labs.github.io/pixiedust/index.html), a package that makes the visualisation of data simpler with only on 'display()' API. In this talk I will show examples of Data Science and Machine Learning from a browser, using Python notebooks with UK Crime Data (https://data.police.uk/data/) and NYPD Motor Vehicle collision Data (https://data.cityofnewyork.us/Public-Safety/NYPD-Motor-Vehicle-Collisions/h9gi-nx95) and more. All examples will be on Github after the talk.
